Things to do

The gem for outdoor activities in Western Australia, there’s so many fun things to discover in Broome. With a year-round tropical climate, miles of stunning coast, a multicultural history and luxury resorts, it won’t take long for you to slow right down to ‘Broome time’.

You might already be dreaming of a sunset camel-ride along Cable Beach, though prepare to pack your agenda to make the most of the natural playground of the north-west of Australia. Be sure to shop at a pearl farm, take a hovercraft tour and discover 120 million year old dinosaur footprints at Roebuck Bay Marine Park, or take a helicopter ride to marvel at the contrasting colours over Gantheaume Point and the rugged red Pindan Cliffs.

Broome and the Kimberley play host to a bounty of events from beach polo to aboriginal cultural celebrations. For those travelling into the Kimberley during May, watch out for the Ord Valley Muster in Kununurra. If you’re in Broome during August and September, look up the plethora of cultural and culinary events that fall under the Shinju Matsuri Festival. It’s the perfect place to start your adventure in comfort among the expansive natural playground of the north-west, where the wilderness meets the Indian Ocean.
